6th Annual Battle Arena Melbourne in May
I'll admit it. Competitive gamers annoy me. Well, it's not that they annoy me so much as I have nothing but bad memories of getting my butt kicked at Timezone by those much better at fighting games than myself. Okay, maybe it wasn't them but me... my name is Ryan and I'm a button masher.
For those of you that actually have some semblance of skill, Battle Arena Melbourne is your chance to test your mettle against some of the best fighting game competitors in the country.
